I’m happy to report that a consensus has been reached in that regard among recognized experts in the gluten field.
This article summarizes the information in the report produced by the expert panel in what is hopefully easy to understand American English. This will give everyone who uses ElegantlyGlutenFree.com a common reference as to what is meant when we use various terms and classifications in articles and posts.
The Consensus Report
The process to arrive at the consensus began in 2011. At that time 15 scientists, all recognized experts in various parts of the “gluten issue,” began to work together to standardize terminology as well as classification of the different diseases and processes which appeared to be associated with the group of gluten-related problems.
In a report published at the end of last year (October, 2012) by BioMedical Central, a consistent, universal terminology and classification system was developed by this panel of 15 experts to be used when dealing with gluten-related medical/scientific issues.
Here is my next gluten-free diet menu plan, complete with some of my family’s favorite meals.
I haven’t prepared a menu plan lately, and I’ve been feeling the lack of organization. To be honest, it’s been crazy! Having a plan should return a tad more peace into my kitchen – it always does.
Another benefit: Most of these gluten-free meals also are fairly simple to prepare. The baked snacks and desserts take a little more time, but if you don’t want to turn on the oven for them, you can always serve more of the fruit and yogurt snacks…or buy a few goodies from your local gluten-free bakery or health food store. The Oatmeal Bars and the Applesauce Nut Muffins are favorites for packing and snacking around here. The Chocolate Potato Cake is planned for a birthday request.
The next several free excerpts will be from a section devoted to helping you learn how to set up your gluten-free pantry and kitchen in a home with both gluten-free and gluten-y individuals…
